Actually this perfect short film is entitled 10 things We Love About Italy and it hits the mark. The Perennial Plate takes us on a journey through the Italy as they explore what they say is their most favorite things. It’s hard not to agree. Pasta, pizza, espresso and olive oil are to name a few. Our favorite? Has to be the gelato. Pick your own favorite and we dare you not to be hungry! (via Vimeo)

Relish Magazine has created a well done how-to video on grilling artichokes. Whether you are a fan of artichokes or not, we have to say this a fine and wonderfully choreographed video. Mixed with the perfect music we find ourselves wanted to eat some artichokes. You can find more info on their cooking show here.
In Stuttgart, Germany one can find many different types of food festivals. This time of year, the folks in northern Germany come a little south and host the Hamburger Fischmarkt right in Stuttgart. For over 20 years they bring with them the finest fish from pike to shrimp to herring and even some sailor’s stew. With the weather nice outside and a Saturday you can find much of the city downtown to experience this fun and lively festival.

Dan Cretu uses a wide variety of eatables to create these creative and fun shots. All of these photos are very light-hearted and full of color. Our favorite has to be the bagel cassette, as one commenter put it… it’s 60 minutes of sweet music. You can find Dan Cretu’s full gallery on 500px or you can visit him on his blog.
Garret Steider has created a fun and what seems to be a real time-consuming project he calls Typefruitography. Garret has managed to produce ever letter of the alphabet using fruits or almost all fruits (but close enough). He painstakingly carved out both upper and lower case letters and we love it. We picked out our favorite letters and do apologize for duplicating the A’s… but you can’t spell chaQula without two apples! (via bumbumbum)
